EP 179 | Adrian Sutherland


When The Magic Hits is Adrian Sutherland’s debut solo album.

The first single Magic Hits was written by Adrian along with previous collaborators, brothers Chris & Matt Gormley.

Seven tracks on the album were produced, engineered, and mixed by Canadian-born Colin Linden, who worked remotely from Nashville while Adrian remained isolated in northern Attawapiskat First Nation. Colin lent his legendary guitar talents and back-up vocals to the tracks, helping bring Adrian’s songs to life with a whole new depth of heart and soul.

Two album tracks were produced, engineered, and mixed by Tim Vesely at The Woodshed Studio in Toronto. Adrian worked remotely with Vesely, who plays guitar and bass on the recordings.

When The Magic Hits features co-writes with Chris Gormley (The Trews) and Matt Gormley (Daylight for Deadeyes), Tim Vesely (Rheostatics), Colin Cripps (Blue Rodeo), Jay Semko (The Northern Pikes), Scott Dibble (Hemingway Corner), and Serena Ryder.

Adrian is far removed from studios and handy technology. People who live in the North need to be very resourceful. Just like Adrian.

He got a Sea Can donated. The same large metal containers that ship products by rail and sea all over the World.

He outfitted the inside into a recording studio. And instead of satellite dishes on the roof, he put a forest of moose antlers.

Other communities and artists

The songs are really well written, sung, and recorded. Smart to have Colin Linden pulling the whole thing together from Nashville.

Adrian walks us through several of the songs from When the magic hits. They include Nowhere to run which he wrote about his Mother who survived being sent to Indian Residential School. Another is Walk with me about walking with a friend around the entire shore of James Bay. A long and very hard journey.

When asked, Adrian leaves us with an invite to check out his music – in Cree.

Discover a great new voice. Adrian Sutherland!!

EP 178 | Bahamas


This is, I believe, the 4th interview I’ve had the pleasure of doing with Afie Jurvanen!

From the very first listen I heard a unique and gifted singer and songwriter.

Blessed with a voice that is like no other and a great personality that allows him to make fun of himself – in song.

Ah but what songs.

Get prepared to love the songs you love -even more.  Imagine the confidence it takes to create music with some of the world’s best musicians but doing it long distance in separate studios.

Best of all this is just Volume 1.  The rest of these sessions may set my hair on fire.

Afie takes us through several tracks. How they got recorded and best of all his place in today’s music.


Bahamas (Afie Jurvanen) is currently in New York City  on his American Sad and Solo Tour and Friday Oct 8 he released highlights from his celebrated Live To Tape studio collaboration series in the form of digital EPs and a special vinyl edition.
The first digital EP, Live To Tape, Volume Ihighlights the Nashville sessions. Featuring performances with Grammy Award winners The 400 Unit, and The Secret Sisters backed by legendary Nashville musicians Gene Chrisman (Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson), Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Sturgill Simpson), and Russ Pahl (Kacey Musgraves, Glen Campbell).

Created during the pandemic, Live To Tape captures Bahamas performing in-studio from Halifax, Nova Scotia with acclaimed artists performing remotely from studios in Nashville, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Perth, Toronto, and other locations. Other collaborations with Bahamas include Lucius, Australia’s Teskey BrothersMadison CunninghamGreensky Bluegrass, members of Dawes along with revered session musicians such as Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder), Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), Gus Seyffert (Beck, Adele), Joey Waronker (REM, Atoms for Peace), Bob Glaub (Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan), Russ Kunkel (Joni Mitchell, John Lennon) and many more.
The Globe and Mail have called Bahamas an unassuming giant” of Canadian music, averaging over 3.5 million regular monthly listens on Spotify alone, with more than half a billion streams to date.

His most recent release Sad Hunk received the 2021 JUNO Award for Adult Alternative Album of the Year. A seven-time JUNO nominee, Jurvanen also received this accolade for Bahamas Is Afie in 2015, when he was also named Songwriter Of The Year.

“I Got You Babe” by BAHAMAS & The 400 UNIT []

Mulligan Stew Oct 9th 2021-Two new albums from two familiar guests David GoGo (Silver Cup) and Bahamas /Afie Jurvanen (Live to Tape Vol 1)


David GoGo releases Silver Cup Friday. Produced by Steve Mariner up on GoGo Mountain above Nanaimo.

Acoustic blues..a lot less electric guitar and more early blues sound.

I LIKE it.

Dave joins us from the front porch of The Ranch.

Afie Jurvanen – stage name Bahamas – continues to seriously raise his profile.

Saturday night be will be headlining Webster Hall in NYC as part of his So Sad Tour and he’ll be sitting down with me to talk about Live to Tape Vol 1.

If you haven’t seen his YouTube videos – do check them out.

He based himself in his studio in Halifax and then dialed in rhythm sections in LA and Nashville and more.

He’s reimagining his songs with Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty) Nathan East (Everybody including Clapton)  Jason Isbell’s The 400 unit – Dawes..lots more

And this is VOL 1…lots more to come.

We also salute the birthdays of John Lennon and Jackson Browne

The complete Bahamas interview will drop right after the Stew finishes.

EP 177 | Whitehorse


Last Saturday I had Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet – Whitehorse – on Mulligan Stew CKUA Radio.

We shook the place up “real good” but this is the complete interview. Room for both Melissa and Luke to expand on the “Happy Hour Live”  experience from their living room during the lockdown.

They walk and talk us through their new album Strike Me Down and then we get really specific about

“what is Rock and Roll now”?

What is the new album in January?

Are you playing Massey Hall?

Tour dates in 2022?


Mulligan Stew Oct 2nd 2021-Remembering Tom Petty


I’m going to be remembering and honoring the music and life of Tom Petty.

Tragically,  after a huge tour of many weeks and months, Tom died in his home on October 2 /2017.

I got to meet and interview him the week Tom and the Heartbreakers released that first great album. The interview was in Leon Russell’s office at Shelter Records. Looking down on Sunset Blvd.

He was quiet, humble and funny. Great guy.

Now, I think of the music he would have written. The songs we’ll never hear.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have left us a legacy that tells their whole story.

The Stew ends with Breakdown (live) with the audience singing the first third of the song.

“you’re gonna put me out of a job”

We start The Stew  with Chris and Rich Robinson Live at The Roxy laying into  Lowell George’s Roll Um Easy

Then Santana /Stevie Winwood followed by Larkin Poe

Along the way, we celebrate Sting’s birthday. Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor, Ray Charles (twice), Van Morrison Live at Hollywood Bowl, U2, Al Green, Martin Kerr and Celeigh Cardinal, The Hip, Stones, Rod Stewart, and Ronnie Lane doing Every Picture tell a story (live)…lots more.

EP 176 | Kímmapiiyipitssini: The Meaning of Empathy


Kímmapiiyipitssini: [GEE-maa-bee-bit-sin] (A Blackfoot word that means “giving kindness to each other”)

ElleMáijá Tailfeathers’ film witnesses radical and profound change in her community. Kímmapiiyipitssini: The Meaning of Empathy is an intimate portrait of survival, love, and the collective work of healing in the Kainai First Nation in Southern Alberta, a Blackfoot community facing the impacts of substance use and a drug-poisoning epidemic.

Community members active in addiction and recovery, first responders, and medical professionals implement harm reduction to save lives. This work is contextualized within the historical and contemporary impacts of settler colonialism; Kímmapiiyipitssini: The Meaning of Empathy draws a connecting line between the effects of colonial violence on Blackfoot land and people and the ongoing substance-use crisis.

Held in love and hope for the future, Kímmapiiyipitssini: The Meaning of Empathy asks the audience to be a part of this remarkable change with the community.

A member of the Kainai First Nation and the Sámi in Norway, Tailfeathers creates an intimate portrait of her community and the impacts of the substance use and overdose epidemic…

Special Guests in the second hour Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland – Whitehorse!

They bring with them stories and new music from the just-released album Strike Me Down.

They got themselves through Covid lockdown by performing mini-concerts in their home (Happy Hour Sessions) with their son joining them occasionally.

Luke and Melissa also took the time to write lots of songs.  10 of the best show up on their new album.

As always, you can never anticipate which Whitehorse will show up.

They revel in blues, rock, pop, Abba disco. All with storytelling lyrics, wicked guitar work, and vocals that keep moving around like a UFO.

Luke, Melissa, and I cover 4 tracks from the album, riff on the question what IS rock and roll these days and what does 2022 look like.

For starters  2022 includes Massey Hall on March 3  and National Arts Centre on March 19!

Melissa and Luke are two of the most interesting artists working today. They have worked very hard to seek and find an audience that wants to celebrate the full Whitehorse experience.

EP 174 | Martha Wainwright


For some artists that’s an eternity. For Martha it’s called “having a life”.

The life included the breakup of her marriage. Fighting for custody of her children.  Opening a bistro that became a studio. Having to justify being a female artist who’s also a mother. The feedback was “surely you can’t be both”?

The album is called Love will be Reborn which is exactly what happened to Martha. The songs that followed the writing of the title track reflect exactly what happened in the 5 years between releases. Produced by Pierre Marchand. You just know this is good.

It’s her very best work yet. Songs like Justice, Body and soul, Hole in my heart, and Love will be reborn. We’ll include them all in the podcast.

This conversation is not a Q&A. It’s me engaging Martha and getting the hell out of the way.

Love the woman. Love the music.

It’s Martha Wainwright people. Listen up.

Mulligan Stew Sept 18th 2021- Special Guest Martha Wainright


“Fearless, untethered arrangements… Wainwright’s fifth LP has artistry galore”

– MOJO ****

On par with Patti Smith’s early work with albums such as “Horses” and Neil Young’s “After the Gold Rush”

 – The Toronto Star

Martha has a beautiful new collection of songs called Love will be reborn

It’s been 5 yrs. since I last talked to Martha Wainwright. My first question was “how were those 5 years for you”?

She stopped answering almost 10 minutes later. Covered a lot of moments such as  a divorce and fighting for the custody of her children. (Justice)  All artists should attempt to be this forthcoming.

A marriage falling apart (Hole in my heart) and the title track about belief in herself,  seeking & finding a new heart. (Love will be reborn). We’ll  also play the wonderful Body and soul

Martha starts her world tour Sunday at a music festival in Nashville. Followed by 2 nights Monday & Tuesday  in London.  Canadian dates in November.

The complete interview will drop right after The Stew finishes. On the Mulligan Stew Podcast.

And the surrounding playlist includes new music from

  • Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
  • Steve Mariner
  • Bahamas (interview coming)
